For a number of years, the Interactive Media (now Graphic Design and Video Production) Career Tech Program, taught by Mark Lynch, has had students participate in the Ohio Attorney General's "Take Action" video contest, producing a 60-second video public service announcement. In the past, we have had one student, Alyssa Langguth, who placed second, winning a $1500 scholarship.
This year we have, not one, but three of our students in the program judged as one of the 10 best entries in the state and qualify for the finals, where they may win $2500, $1500, or $1000 scholarships: Valeria Grajdianu, Monet Paul, and Logan Willis.
These students will now resubmit their entries in a finished form, with appropriate paperwork accompanying. Their entries will then be judged and finalists named and awarded in March, of this year. First, second, and third place winners, their parents, and instructors, are also invited to Columbus to meet with the Attorney General for a meet-and-greet and a private awards presentation.
